KUALA LUMPUR, June 22 — A three-year-old boy died after he fell from the 10th floor of a condominium in Jalan Dutamas here, this evening.

The child’s body was found on the third floor of the condominium.

Sentul district police chief ACP Beh Eng Lai said police had received a MERS999 call regarding the incident at 3.30pm.
